Hey there Thomas,
Threshold varied between 0 and +2 Was cruising between 3-6db gain reduction.. depending on how much I pushed vocals/solos....
I have to say that it worked really really well, and made a difference that not only local System techs heard, but all others involved heard as well. The difference was night and day, and this BC-1 will remain on Buss duties as for the foreseeable future regardless of which band I am out mixing. It simply glued everything together really nicely, and didn't mess with the image as so many other buss comps seem to do. Great stuff!
"The BC1 has made a massive difference to the drum sound on this tour. The parallel compression make for a fatter drum-sound without losing out on the transients. On top of that, the BC1 adds a nice silkiness to the highs whilst also managing to make the kick sound warm and punchy at the same time. I love it and I just might have to buy another one for the guitars or the backing vocals - I'll let you know when I've had a chance to experiment some moreâ€¦" .
